Myers Natural Toys is one of our favorite small Etsy shops. I got Kai their wave and tree stackers for her birthday, and they are a hit. They are adorable, nice to touch, and expand her play, the perfect toy trifecta.
It’s Toy Rotation Tuesday here, so I thought I’d write a little bit about how we deal with toys and gifts.
Christmas shopping is in full swing around here. I thought I might make a few suggestions for presents made with natural materials to offset some of the plastic shock that often comes with Christmas. This week I have another list of small scale makers that offer awesome handmade goods.
We’ve been having a long, sad month here in the Craftsman house. Everyone needed a distraction and after a couple days of using Pinterest as my distraction, I gave myself a kick in the pants and started planning out my next project. A project makes everybody feel better right?
Kai is getting a play kitchen. She loved her cousin’s and she been hiding her blocks in cabinets every chance she gets. I think I’ve looked at every play kitchen on the market and most of the DIY ones, too. I’ve been picking out features I like and going back and forth on paint colors. I even bought a Kreg Jig to do a little fancy cabinetry work.
We’re headed out to buy wood Sunday, and I can’t wait. I suspect you’ll all be hearing a lot about this kitchen the next couple weeks. In the mean time, what are your favorite play kitchen features?
